The combination of tender meat and smoky, umami mushrooms has been around since time immemorial. Whether you’re using pork, chicken, or beef, this dynamic duo has given life to so many of our favorite dishes. One of these is the delectable and mouthwatering burger steak, which combines your favorite thick burger patties with copious amounts of flavorful gravy. Burger steaks have become so popular, they’re even a beloved fast food offering! Because we know that beef works so well with mushrooms, why not, then, take it up a notch? Introducing now: the delightful and delicious creamy beef with mushroom!
Melt in your mouth beef and sweet and savory mushroom sauce — these are what await you in this beef with mushroom dish. Our creamy beef with mushroom includes thin slices of sirloin that we’ve cooked tantalizingly slowly and patiently, in order to get that nice succulence and juiciness we love. Combine it with button mushrooms and Knorr’s Cream of Mushroom, too, and you have an abundance of overwhelmingly delicious flavors!
Creamy Beef with Mushroom Ingredients
From the title alone, you can probably tell that this recipe is fairly straightforward. There aren’t many ingredients you need to make this terrific recipe — which is part of the beauty of it! This crowd pleaser dish requires only the following:
Beef sirloin. This recipe calls for sirloin, a steak cut from the rear back portion of the cow. Sirloin is a lean cut — meaty, flavorful, and perfect for the recipe we’re making today. For this beef with mushroom we’ll use about 2 pounds of it. While I like to have mine in thin slices for the ease to cook and enjoy, you can also opt to cube them or slice them into neat strips.
\Button mushrooms. There are so many kinds of mushrooms out there, it’s hard to decide which kind to use in select dishes! Depending on the intensity of flavors you’re after, you can choose from a wide range of options. For this creamy beef with mushroom, I like to use button mushrooms — arguably one of the easiest to source. Button mushrooms are small and round, much like the buttons we name them after. They have a milder flavor, especially when you compare them to flat or shiitake mushrooms. But this mild flavor makes the perfect partner to your delectable and smoky beef — not overpowering nor overwhelming.
Knorr Cream of Mushroom. A creamy mushroom sauce for this dish simply wouldn’t be complete without tasty Knorr Cream of Mushroom! While we typically use this for a classically comforting mushroom soup, this mix will give our dish the creaminess we’re definitely after. This Knorr Cream of Mushroom adds to that rich, umami flavor of mushrooms, making your dish even more mouthwatering!
Parsley. With a touch of an earthy tone, parsley is a great addition to your creamy beef with mushroom. It has an all around clean taste that can cut through most of the mushroom’s flavors while simultaneously complementing them. A tablespoon of this chopped herb will make all the difference in this hearty and satisfying dish.
Garlic and onion
Butter and cooking oil
Fresh from Hawaiian shores, this loco moco recipe is sure to please Filipino appetites! And why shouldn’t it, when it takes all these ingredients that we know and love well? Loco Moco is a combination of juicy burger patties in mushroom sauce, a tasty fried egg, and hearty white rice. This filling recipe appeals to the kids and kids at heart for its simplicity and deliciousness! Loco moco, much like your creamy beef with mushroom, is the perfect baon for any day of the week.
We weren’t wrong when we said mushrooms can go with anything! Just take a look at this creamy mushroom chicken. Similar to your beef with mushroom, this dish is creamy, hearty, and overall a crowd pleaser. In this dish, we add green beans and carrots to make it even more nutritious, too; The smoky and slightly sweet beans are great in balancing out the flavors the abundance of mushrooms provides. Try it and see for yourself!
Of course, if we’re talking about all time classic Filipino mushroom dishes, we can’t go without talking about lengua. This tasty ox tongue recipe is warm and rich, with this unique meat soaking up all that tasty mushroom flavor. Ox tongue may be new for some of you to cook with, but fear not! The key to making lengua great is its tenderness; that’s why you have to boil it down for about 1 to 1 ½ hours to ensure you’re getting maximum juiciness. The result is a dish that is timelessly delicious; the addition of whipping cream and mayonnaise certainly doesn’t hurt either!
How to make Creamy Beef with Mushroom
Tenderize your beef
In making your creamy beef with mushroom, we start by ensuring your beef is as succulent as can be. This happens by first melting 3 tablespoons of butter in a pan, then adding cooking oil. Add your slices of garlic; we’ll need about a head of it, to really get that maximum nutty and delicious flavor. Sauté your garlic until it browns, then add your onions. Cook until they soften, then toss in your sirloin slices. Cook, while stirring, until you get a brown hue on the sides of your beef.
Pour in a cup of water before covering the pan. Adjust to a low simmer, and continue to cook for about 35 minutes. Not only will this give your dish that garlicky and onion flavor, but it’ll also guarantee its becoming fork-tender.
When your 35 minutes are up, add 8 ounces of button mushrooms and stir. Meanwhile, combine a cup of water and a pack of Knorr Cream of Mushroom in a bowl. Once you’ve incorporated the mix well into the water, you can now pour the mixture into the pan. Bring your dish to a boil, and, without the cover on, continue cooking for 10 to 15 minutes.
For the last bit of this creamy beef with mushroom recipe, season your dish with salt and ground black pepper. Top it with parsley, take it off the stove — et voila! Your dish is ready to be enjoyed! Make sure to serve it with warm rice before sharing.
